Senior Financial Recruiter (International Desk)

Job Description

Whilst we are lucky enough to partner with Cape Town’s best candidates and clients in the field of finance, we are luckier still to work in a truly unique team environment.  We give you the brand, the infrastructure, the marketing artillery and you do the business. We have the lowest staff turn-over in the industry, why wouldn’t you want to join us?

A direct result of having been a market leader in the financial recruitment business for over 25 years is that we have a brand that has extremely strong relationships with thousands of CA’s and the reputation with clients that employ them, both in SA and abroad.  The international relationships have grown to such an extent that we need to build a dedicated team to take over the growing niche of placing qualified Accountants abroad, in countries that are increasingly receptive to the opportunity. Due to a recent retirement, you would take over a desk billing over R1m in the last 9 months and which could easily be double that in the next 12 months. It is highly likely local Restraint of Trades would not apply.


  • The full 360 degree recruitment cycle on your own profit-making desk
  • Business development, client retention and client relationship management
  • Candidate sourcing, qualifying and matching
  • Candidate retention and relationship management

The ideal candidate has:

  • 5+ years’ experience in external professional recruitment at a senior level  
  • Outstanding communication and interpersonal skills
  • Confidence and ability to engage professionally at all levels
  • Commitment to high level of excellence
  • Business partnering and relationship building skills
  • High level of integrity and work ethic

On average, our consultants have close to 10 years external recruitment experience and each bill over R1 million pa. We don’t have the ability to train newcomers to this industry. We hire senior recruiters with a proven track record and who are solid account managers, exclusively within the financial recruitment space. This superb opportunity would suit someone with a proven business acumen and go getter personality. It requires a skillset way above the ability to simply match CVs as a transactional consultant.

If you have the reputation to justify this belief, I would be keen to have a “virtual” cup of coffee. We have offices in Cape Town and operate a hybrid working structure. We have an environment and flexibility that allows our recruiters to feel like they are running their own business within a business.

We will not be looking at anyone with less than 5 years external recruitment consultant experience. Our model does not allow us to train up inexperienced people. Our environment is a perfect fit for established consultants with strong business acumen looking to move to Cape Town either from Gauteng or the UK.

Please note that if you have not heard from us within 2 weeks of your application, please consider it as unsuccessful for this particular role.
